Cuca delighted with five-star Atlético Mineiro
Atlético Mineiro coach Cuca has expressed his delight at the scoreline after his side thrashed Argentinean side Arsenal 5-2.
Goals from Jô, Diego Tardelli and a hat-trick from Bernard sealed all three points as Atlético go top of their group after two games.
"We are very happy. I don't remember a Brazilian team scoring five goals in the Libertadores against an Argentine side away from home. We worked the ball well, the goals were well worked," said Cuca.
"We played at a high tempo, which is what we like, and we could have done more at the end, but it's great to come here and win the way we did."
But the coach admitted that there is room for improvement as he tweaks his side for the upcoming Brasileirão campaign.
"If we play with four strikers, the opponent will have chances to score, there's no way about it. If I play with four defensive midfielders, they will have few chances to score, but then I'll also have trouble scoring.
"We were very effective, but we can not kid ourselves and think that everything's perfect, because we have to improve."
